What does Bowe-Miami twitter talk mean?
By Bill Williamson
I was hesitant to address this because player Twitter chatter doesn’t catch my attention much, especially when it comes to affairs of their team. But I was asked about the Dwayne Bowe-Miami flirtation enough Monday that I decided to address it.
Players may have opinions. They have preferences. But they have no power when it comes to the shaping of rosters.
Vontae Davis and Chad Ochocinco may want Bowe to join them in Miami. Bowe may even want to go, as Davis suggested in a one of the tweets, but it doesn’t mean anything.
Bowe will be a Dolphin if the Chiefs want him to be one and I don’t see that happening this year.
Perhaps if Bowe, who has not signed his franchise tag, will one day sign with the Dolphins as a free agent. But it is out of his control for now. Also remember, let’s not get on Bowe for wanting to go to Miami. Until he says he does, I will give him the benefit of the doubt.
Let’s just chalk this up to bored players having a little Twitter fun. It will remain a non-story until the Chiefs decide they want to make it one.
